Advancing Science at Lehman College
Building a Virtual Database for the Study of Evolution
A national team of scientists, including faculty from Lehman College, is finding a way to advance the study of evolution without waiting for just the right fossils to be discovered. A preliminary phase of their work, captured in a video, has won an Honorable Mention in the third annual Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Science Foundation.
'Magnetic Flames' in Molecular Magnets Exhibit Properties Similar to Real Fire
In a groundbreaking experiment, researchers from Lehman College and the City College of New York have measured the speed of magnetic avalanches and discovered that the process is analogous to the flame front of a flammable substance. The discovery of a "magnetic flame" could make it easier for engineers to study the dynamics of fire.
